Numbering plan for the national interstate system

🚫This section is now closed. The process has moved on to discussion and voting.
  • Option 1: East/west routes are even numbered, ranging from 2 in the north to 98 in the south; north/south routes are odd numbered, ranging from 1 in the east to 99 in the west; loops and spurs add a digit in front, similar to US (e.g. 498 is a loop of 98)
  • Option 2: East/west routes range from 10 in the south to 49 in the north; north/south routes range from 50 in the east to 99 in the west; nearby routes may add any third digit on the end (e.g. 640, 641, 642, etc, may be located near 64)
  • Option 3: Two-tier system. Numbers 1-19 for more important routes, 20-99 for less important routes. East/west routes are even numbered, ranging from 2 in the south to 18 in the north, and 20 in the south to 98 in the north; north/south routes are odd numbered, ranging from 1 in the east to 19 in the west, and 21 in the east to 99 in the west. loops and spurs: pick one from the other options
  • Option 4: Two-tier system. Numbers 1-19 for more important routes, 20-99 for less important routes. For branch-off routes (spurs) add an additional digit at the end. For loops use easy-to-remember numbers like 100, 200, 300 etc.
  • Option 5: Odd numbered higways east-west, increasing in number east to west; even numbered highways north-south, increasing in number north to south. Main long highways designed multiples of five (5, 15, 25... for N-S and 10, 20, 30... for E-W). Loops would be a 3-digit number ending with 0, spurs would add a 3rd digit from the highway they branch from, adding a 0 in the left if the highway has only one number (051 would be a spur of highway 5, for example).
  • Option 6:
-East/west routes are even numbered, ranging from 2 in the north to 98 in the south; north/south routes are odd numbered, ranging from 1 in the east to 99 in the west.
-Spurs would add a 1,2,3, or 4 in front of the highway it branches off of (ex. 134 and 234 would be spurs of highway 34) and adding a zero before the single digit if the highway is only one digit (ex. 103 or 203 would be spurs of highway 3).
-Loops would be independently numbered 500-999
  • Option 7: Two-tier system. Numbers 1-19 for more important routes, 20-99 for less important routes. East/west routes are even numbered, ranging from 2 in the south to 18 in the north, and 20 in the south to 98 in the north; north/south routes are odd numbered, ranging from 1 in the west to 19 in the east, and 21 in the west to 99 in the east. For branches/spurs, add a zero to the beginning of the number (if single digits the middle number should be a zero). For loops add a zero to the end of the number (if single digits add two zeroes). Exits are numbered in order from south to north, west to east, and clockwise (for loops).
  • Option 8: East-west routes are even-numbered (2-100), north-south routes are odd-numbered (1-101). Coast-to-coast or border-to-border routes end in either 0 or 1. Low-numbered routes in the south and east; high-numbered routes in the north and west. All spur routes have an added leading digit, which increases southeast to northwest (e.g., Route 110 and Route 710 are both spurs of Route 10, with Route 710 significantly further west than Route 110). Spurs of Route 100 or Route 101 simply replace the first 1 with a different digit (e.g., Route 300 is a spur of Route 100; Route 601 is a spur of Route 101. This may result in the same route number as a spur of Route 1, but they will be on opposite sides of the country and therefore difficult to confuse.)

Summary Table

Option Name General E-W Primary E-W Low-to-high E-W General N-S Primary N-S Low-to-high N-S Spur Routes Bypass Routes Notes
1 evens (<100) north to south odds (<100) east to west add digit to front of parent route
2 <500 (except 50-99), first two digits correspond to nearest primary 10-49 south to north >500 (except 50-99), first two digits correspond to nearest primary 50-99 east to west
3 evens (<100) evens 2-18 south to north odds (<100) odds 1-19 east to west No preference on spur route numbering
4 Primary routes are 1-19, secondary routes are 20-99, regardless of direction add digit to right of parent number easy-to-remember numbers (100, 200, 300, etc.)
5 odds end in 5s north to south evens end in 0s west to east 3-digit numbers ending in 0, might or not be related to main highway add an additional digit right of parent number. If this makes it 2 digit, add 0 in the left spur example: from highway 50: 501, 502, etc. From highway 7: 071, 072, etc.
6 evens north to south odds east to west add digit <5 to front of parent number three digits, >500
7 evens (<100) evens 2-18 south to north odds (<100) odds 1-19 west to east add zero to left of parent number add zero to right of parent number
8 TheMayor evens (2-100) end in 0 south to north odds (1-101) end in 1 east to west add digit in front of parent route, increasing southeast to northwest spurs of 100 and 101 replace the first digit
9 Rhiney boi odds (1-99) 1-19 south to north evens (0-98) 0-18 east to west Odd number in front of parent route indicates a route that only connects with the system ONCE. Even number means more than one. Ie. Bypasses, connectors, loops... in no specific order Spurs and bypasses of 0-9 (X0Y, where X is the number of bypass/spur and Y is the Highway Number).

History

Famous national historical figures (creating a list for naming purposes)

This section has moved to OGF:Federal States/Important Persons. The real USA has famous names that appear throughout the country — Washington, Lincoln, MLK, etc. This section is where you can submit names that will appear throughout AR120.

  • Please submit names only, no other information.
  • No real people, or any names too reminiscent of real people.
  • To create realistic old-fashioned names, check out which names were popular in old-fashioned times.

Voting results will determine each name's place on an overall list of names, ranked by level of importance. Names at the top of the list will be encouraged to appear all over the country, as street names, park names, town names, highway names, county names, etc.

If you take a name for a biography, then please set a link to mark, that this name is used
